As the Coronavirus pandemic continues to greatly affect major cities throughout this country, as the number of cases continue to fluctuate, schools being to re-open, some in-person and some virtually, many of us are settling into the daily and practical lifestyle routine that allows us all to be safe.

The Los Angeles County continues to play a huge role in the progression of “normalcy” as the county is one of the biggest areas that remains impacted by Covid-19 cases. As the county inches closer to meeting the standards to being removed from the state’s COVID-19 watch list, the county has one more mark to reach in order for re-openings to begin again. Yesterday, August 26, there were a reported 198 cases per 100,000 residents, according to Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer. As the county has already reached five indicator that brings it closer to removal, the sixth indicator of reaching a case rate to less than 100 per 100,00 residents is extremely near.

Counties on the watch list continue to have business closures that include gyms, fitness centers, beauty salons, shopping malls, and many others.

Governor Newsom and Mayor Eric Garcetti continue to urge Angelenos to wear face masks, as mandated, as well as practice social distancing.
